Frederick is my father. At age 16 he lied about his age to join the Navy after the bombing of Pearl Harbor. He was the engineer on the PBM amphibian plane. After the war he came home and he did what he could to get a job. With a standard of honesty and hard work my father worked until he retired at 68 years old. His grandchildren and I attended his high school graduation when he was 74. He's now 83 and plays golf twice s a week. He's never asked for anything and would do anything for his fellow man. For that... he's our family hero.
